I have a two part question.
1: When running robocopy should it run on the Source or Destination Server?
2: The source Data is on a Server 2003 32 Bit OS and the destination server is a Server 2008 R2 Standard. Is it a bad idea to run multi instances of Robocopy to try and expidite the overall sync faster. I am dealing with close to 6.5 TB worth of data.
I have a script that will loop throught each first level folder and start a Robocopy Job for that folder. This script can run as many instances as I want. I was thinking 3 to 4 instance.
The script with start an isolated job just on Folder A and all it's sub folders and if the count of Robocopy instances is = 2 than it will move on and do Folder B at the same time while waiting to see if the robocopy instance count drops below 2. If it does it will then start on Folder C and so on.
